“The Global Humanities Initiative will provide fresh and profound insight into big-picture questions – the future of the human world and the human spirit – by drawing together diverse perspectives. Together, we will examine history, culture and the arts through multiple lenses, in order that we may better understand ourselves, our past and present, and re-imagine our collective future.” – Stephen J. Toope, Vice-Chancellor, University of Cambridge at the launch of the Global Humanities Initiative.

The Global Humanities Initiative has one simple but ambitious aim: to permanently transform the way we teach, research and think about the Humanities by bringing different cultures and perspectives into dialogue with each other to create a more diverse and globally aware research agenda and curriculum.

And, we need your help. If you are interested in learning more about or supporting our work, please get in touch! We are seeking partnerships with individuals, trusts and foundations that share our vision. Support from philanthropic and research funding partners will ensure that the Global Humanities Initiative has the resources needed for innovative and interdisciplinary research, a dynamic and relevant events programme and truly global convening and teaching opportunities.
